Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Database for Remote Sensing and Mapping

UPDATED for 2015: Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Database Available for Download

New & Improved for 2015

Safe DronesAerial Services completed this market survey of existing Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) in September 2012 and has been updating it continuously to document the fast changing market. It contains nearly 150 different models of small unmanned aircraft (sUAS) sensors and photogrammetric software from all over the world. The products listed here are intended primarily for civil remote sensing and mapping use.

This information illustrates the diversity of unmanned aerial systems and, with time, will record just how quickly this market is changing and maturing. The main utility of this information will be to quickly discover the plethora of available options for Unmanned Aerial Systems useful for creating geospatial information and services. Today’s major players in each of these market segments are easily identified.

This database is not complete. Not only is this market rapidly developing with different products being offered and retired each week, but no attempt has been made to include those sUAS used primarily for military or surveillance purposes, or those marketed only in foreign countries.

Aerial Services acknowledges the Iowa Space Grant Consortium (ISGC) for making the original market survey in 2012 possible.
